With multiple facilities across the United States, we have the capacity to handle large and small projects. We can also help facilitate production of multiple products if you are looking to add several new types of products. As a complete turnkey manufacturer, we handle every aspect of the production process for you.
Types of Salves and Balms
As you develop your product plans, there are several types of salves and balms to consider. The main difference between a salve and a balm is in the consistency. Salves and balms are both made from beeswax or another type of wax and can include multiple oils and other ingredients. However, salves are softer since they usually have a smaller ratio of wax in their composition. Some salves may be put into squeezable tubes, and harder balms often come in push-up tubes, jars or tins.
Aromatherapy Salve or Balm
Aromatherapy salves and balms are usually designed to promote an improved mood, sleep or something else. We offer plenty of essential oil choices to create a variety of combined or single scents.
Hand and Foot Salve
This type of salve usually includes ingredients to protect the tougher skin on the hands and feet. If you want to add a product to your line to show specific care for people who garden, walk barefoot or have another specific use for their hands and feet, we can help you create it.
Face or Lip Salve
You may want to create a protective lip salve for dry, cracked lips. Perhaps you want to make a beauty salve that contains vitamins and minerals for the face. Lip and face salves can be protective or beautifying depending on the ingredients that you want to include. We can create a wide array of face or lip salves.
Lip balm is a popular product and has a variety of purposes. Some companies market lip balms with sun protection for people who spend time outdoors. Others market lip balms for protection during the dry and cold winter months or to add vitamins to the skin on the lips. Whether you want to create a protective or a soothing balm, we can help. There are also artificial and natural flavors and sweeteners for lip balms.
Since many people have dry, cracked or ashy skin on their heels, this is a popular product that can be marketed to all age groups. If you want to create a heel balm with a special ingredient to set yourself apart from competitors, we can help develop it.
Muscle balms are usually designed to help soothe or relax muscles. They are popular with athletes and among people who have ailments or work in laborious jobs. Today, CBD muscle balm is a popular product that is marketed for both purposes.
Also, we can manufacture a variety of related personal care products, such as:
- Roll-on oils and ointments
- Botanical oils and face oils
